Here's a press release from IEEE that I think will interest a number of us

The IEEE Computer Society invites interested persons to participate in a
survey of its software engineering standards. Please visit the website at
URL '' to participate. The survey will be conducted
from January 1 - March 31, 1997.

The IEEE Technical Council on Software Engineering has initiated a
strategic review of IEEE Software Engineering Standards. Standards are the
backbone of industry and trade. Practically all IEEE Software Engineering
standards are adopted as the U.S. national (ANSI) standards. IEEE is
world's largest professional organization, with over 300,000 members. It's
largest part is the Computer Society; in turn, CS's largest part is
Technical Council on Software Engineering--a body that stands behind all
IEEE Software Engineering Standards.

The results of this survey will be presented in the 'Users of Software
Standards' workshop at the Third International Symposium and Forum on
Software Engineering Standards (ISESS '97) to be held June 1-6, 1997 at the
Mariott Hotel in Walnut Creek, CA and on the above URL. The recommendations
from the workshop will be presented to the IEEE Software Engineering
Standards Committee (SESC). ISO/IEC SC7 plenary meetings hosted by USA
follow ISESS97 and the results of the workshop will also serve as input
into the strategic planning sessions of SC7.

The symposium consists of tutorials, paper presentations, and workshop
sessions. The goal of the symposium is to capture users' experience with
IEEE software engineering standards in order to improve software
engineering standards for the benefit of government, trade and industry.

To find out more about the symposium and to read the call for papers visit
the IEEE website at URL, contact the General Chair,
John Harauz, at John -dot- Harauz -at- hydro -dot- on -dot- ca, or contact the Program Chair,
